Thanks SNOW Much!

Hi all, and a Very Happy New Year! I've been under the weather with a nasty sinus infection but hopefully over the hump now.

This card uses alcohol inks from Ranger, a Krylon silver leaf pen, glossy card stock and blending solution for the background. It's probably some official "technique", but I don't know the name if so. I was just playing . . . I started with a few dots of silver, then tamped the blues, then softened it with the blending solution using a wiping motion. The finished product was embossed with the snowflake embossing folder. The large snowflake is a cut and emboss die from Cuttlebug, and the sentiment stamp is from A Muse. I had the alcohol inks on my desk so I would remember what colors I used, but in my drug-induced state must have put them away. One color was Stonewashed. I can't remember if I used two colors or three with the silver. I thought it was three until I checked a scrap. The base card (Brocade Blue) and silver cord are both from Stampin' UP! The blingy brad I bought at Target a while back.
Thanks for stopping by today.
